Charles Krauthammer told viewers Wednesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that the Obama administration’s foreign policy of “doing nothing” is making the U.S. “irrelevant.”

“We’re doing nothing," said the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor. "All of the other actors are in play: the jihadists, the Russians, the Iranians, Hezbollah. But not the United States.”

As crises rage on in places like Syria and Egypt, Krauthammer believes President Obama is clinging to the idea the tide of war is receding -- but while this is a phrase the president often repeats, Krauthammer says it’s just not true.
